A bear is getting attention in Tennessee thanks to wandering into a restaurant over the weekend.

A video posted online shows a crowd of people on the street with a bear strolling into Crawdaddy's Restaurant & Oyster Bar in Gatlinburg. An employee says the bear ran up the front staircase before it turned around and left. It did knock a customer over and they had to be treated.

The animal was within arm's reach of several onlookers as many pedestrians filmed the incident. The Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency says it is common to see bears in the area, but warned they are typically not aggressive towards humans if they keep a safe distance.
